Crochet Cushions & Throws

Cushions and throws are a great way to add a new twist to your decor. It’s easy to re-purpose an old pillow by putting a new cover on it. They’re also perfect to make this time of year as it grows warmer outside and you don’t want a heavy project sitting on your lap. Crocheted cushions are great projects to work on while you travel, too! I know not many of us are travelling these days, so taking a smaller project to make on the deck is also a good idea.

Even though we’re still working on our bathroom renovation (and I don’t plan on putting any throw cushions in there), all this renovating (as it creeps into more and more rooms in the house) has me thinking about refreshing the decor all over our house. New covers for cushions are a great way to use up a few skeins of yarn and add a fresh new look to (almost) any room! So check out these great cushions and throws crochet patterns that I’ve curated for you!

This round Rosewheel Cushion Crochet Pattern has a neat embossed look to it with the front post stitches that form the beautiful pinwheel flower design on the front. I love crocheting in the round and this pillow pattern looks like it would work up quickly, keeping my interest with the embossed design on the front.

Here’s another lovely textured cushion cover, the Boho Tassel Throw Pillow Crochet Pattern has a lovely fringe for a casual, vintage vibe. The bobbles and tassels make this cushion cover interesting to crochet, but also a lovely textural experience to just cuddle up to and play with while watching TV.

I’m also completely enjoying the vintage vibe of this Summer of 77 Rainbow Pillow Crochet Pattern. The fun bobbles along the rows of the rainbow. And it’s so easy to be inspired to make this cushion in whatever colours suit your taste! This would look great in a teen’s room as well, with a funky and fun vibe, but not too baby-ish.

While it’s not a cushion, this Love for Frida Blankie Crochet Pattern would make a great throw blanket to add a splash of colour to any room with a fun vintage vibe. If you love Frida Kahlo and her bright and colourful style, you’ll definitely be inspired to make this colourful blanket! It’s a flexible pattern that can be modified easily to use up your existing stash! There’s nothing better than a project that you don’t have to buy more yarn for!

Haha, I bet you weren’t thinking this when you were thinking cushions. But this Cactus Pincushion Crochet Pattern is such a fun little project idea. Super quick to make up and it would make an excellent gift for someone who loves to sew. I definitely think I need one of these in my craft room!

I know I’m not exactly sticking to the theme here today, but I think this Dahlias and Leaves Tapestry Crochet Bag Pattern is so lovely and I think you could easily modify it to close it up and make it a throw pillow. But how cute is this pattern? Love it!

Father’s Day is coming up and you probably don’t have quite enough time to make this Crocheted Cheeseburger Ottoman Pattern unless you start crocheting like a mad-woman, but isn’t it so fun? This would be so fun in a family room, a game room, or a teen’s room. Such a fun idea!

A throw can be a cushion, a blanket or a rug! Check out this Black and White Scandinavian Rug Crochet Pattern. Isn’t it fun? I’m definitely feeling this vibe for our family room, whenever we get to that project (but it’s coming up more and more in conversation these days, so *fingers crossed*!). I’ve been wanting to crochet a rug for a while and this one seems like just the right vibe. Simple, but with enough changes in the pattern to keep me interested.

So back to pillows! This Cowhide Pillow Cover Crochet Pattern is so funky and no cows have to be harmed in its making! I love the funky cowhide inspiration, here! Perfect for a farmhouse vibe or a great gift for a farm family!

I also love this Tropical Leaf Pillow Cover Crochet Pattern. All these different designs on pillows are so fun to cycle into your decor. All you need to do is put a button or zipper closure on this lovely pillow cover and you can easily store away the cover and cycle it in at the start of a new season.

I’m also loving this Super Star Pillow Cover Crochet Pattern. It totally reminds me of the Dr Seuss “The Sneeches” story. But, you know, if you made it in blue and white, you’d have a fun American flag-inspired pillow to display for Independence Day celebrations (you know, if you’re into that… I’m Canadian, so it’s not really my thing, but the stars are pretty cool). This throw pillow would also go well in a beachy themed room and could make a nice addition to a teen’s room, with a little more sophistication.

While a little less sophisticated, this Crochet Donut Pillow Pattern is full of fun! Made with velour yarn, this fun cushion would be so adorable in a kids’ room or a funky family room. It would be so fun to delight a kid with this sweet pillow!

Or if donuts aren’t your thing, check out this Crochet Dog Pillow Pattern. Again, made with the velour/blanket yarn, this cute puppy pillow would be a great pattern to make for a dog-loving kid!

Today I’ve rounded up a collection of cute crochet patterns for you to try to bring some sunshine and delight to your day. They make great gifts and time passing projects. Check out some of these adorable crochet patterns and plan for your next rainy day project.

This delightful little 2 in 1 bunny amigurumi crochet pattern includes a complete tutorial with step by step instructions for how to make these sweet little bunnies with plenty of detailed pictures. These little bunnies would make lovely handmade gifts for a little one or perfect Easter decor!

If you really feel like challenging yourself, you should try to make one of these Micro Mini Doll Crochet Pattern. Look at how tiny that doll is!!!! Crazy! I don’t know If I have the patience or endurance in my hands for that, but she’s so sweet and little, I just might try!

At a slightly larger size, this Amigurumi Fairy Crochet Pattern is also from Pink Mouse Boutique, but still a pretty small doll, depending on the yarn size you choose to use. I love the sweet details on this adorable little fairy. I know so many little girls who love to bring tiny sets of toys with them wherever they go. This would make a delightful little gift for a little girl to have a sweet little fairy to carry along with her in her tiny purse!

Or make a Flamingo Crochet Pattern, obvs. I love quirky stuffed animals! No one expects a flamingo stuffy, and certainly not one that you made! What a fun way to surprise and delight someone for a baby shower than with an adorable flamingo amigurumi! I think this stuffed animal would make a great “grow with me” doll to take month-by-month photos with your baby as they grow. Then you can compare the size of the baby to the size of the stuffy in each photo. So cute.

Or if you’re feeling the Canadian love, try this Beaver Amigurumi Crochet Pattern. You still have plenty of time to whip up this sweet pattern in time for Canada Day! I love the extra embroidery stitching on the tail, which really helps this little creature to read beaver, as well as the sweet little felt teeth.

Or if you’re up for a really quick project, why don’t you try this Red Fox Amigurumi Crochet Pattern? I love the fat tail and the wee little mouth on this adorable little ball-shaped amigurumi! They’re so quick to make up, you can easily make up a skulk of foxes to display or play with!

The same pattern designer, Mohustore, also has this Dinosaurs Crochet Pattern Set, which is a delightful set of tiny ball-shaped dinosaur patterns. So sweet! Such fun little toys for a little one to travel with!

Maybe you’re staying home a lot these days. What better time to have a new pair of slippers! But it’s also summer coming up really quick here, so why don’t your make yourself these Women’s Chunky Gladiator Slippers Crochet Pattern? Open-toed and sandal-like, these are the perfect summer slippers, for avoiding the crumbs the littles are leaving everywhere and treating yourself to a cute pair of slippers!

Or you could whip up one of these Star Stitch Pouches Crochet Pattern! I love a little pouch to hold my make up and crochet hooks and to organize my handbag! Also, you could crochet some of those tiny toys and present them all zipped up in one of these adorable pouches! Storage supplied! (I love things that come with storage!)

If you’d like to take advantage of the cooler weather to start making for the fall, the Granite Poncho Crochet Pattern from All About Ami is cozy poncho to keep warm on cool spring or fall days. I love that this poncho has pockets!!! Pockets are the best!

For a similar style, but a little quicker crochet, this Cowl Neck Capelet Crochet Pattern will crochet up quickly and not add too much bulk.

Or perhaps you’d like to be preparing for warmer days on a cool rainy day. Isn’t this Boho Lacy Sarong Crochet Pattern just lovely? How cute would that be at the beach or just a sunbathing day in your backyard?

Or maybe you’d rather be crocheting something cozy for your home, like this Aspen Pillow Crochet Pattern. I love this textured pillow cover.

Lemons!!!

You know what they say: When life gives you lemons, make lemonade! Or lemon-inspired crafts! I’m on a bit of a lemon kick these days. I actually love the actual fruit. I love to have a wedge of lemon squeezed in my water… delicious! But I also love all the pretty lemon things. I want to add a bit of a pop of lemon to my new bathroom, so I’ve been exploring lemon crafts to include (and also, I get wandering a little bit, so some of these are definitely not suitable for the bathroom). I hope you enjoy this lemon-inspired crafty round up!

*Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links, meaning if you click on them and buy something, you don’t pay any extra, but I may get a small commission.*

I just love this impressive Lemon Tea Cosy crochet pattern! The pile of lemons on top are so real looking with their little stem end! And I love the subtle little nod to experienced crocheters who would recognize the stitch in the body of the tea cosy as the lemon peel stitch. Super cute. It would look so fun in my kitchen!

Or check out this super great vintage set of lemon patterns for the kitchen! A rug, potholders, stool covers, and placemats. What a fun set of patterns. I love the simple in the round design, but with the little teardrop shape of the lemon! Such a fun pattern idea! Great vintage lemony vibe!

You don’t just have to decorate with lemons, you can make knitwear, as well! Check out this adorable lemon knitting hat pattern! This cute little hat may look a little complicated, but there’s just some simple shaping at the crown to give it that lemony profile and a little stem and leaf to top it off. It would make a great gender-neutral baby shower gift and comes in 4 sizes: 0-3 months, 6 months, 12 months and 2T.

For a slightly different profile for a darling Lemon Hat knitting pattern, you could try this one. Which one do you prefer1? I like the rolled rim of the second one, but I think either one would make an adorable baby gift!

Or you can crochet a cute little lemon treasure cake! I don’t think the photos do justice to this stunning piece of art! How fun would it be for a little girl to have a cute little lemon cake decoration, but to be able to fill it with her little treasures!? What if that little girl was in her 40s… that wouldn’t be so bad, right? Love this adorable crochet pattern!

On a more practical note, this Lemonade and Limeade Crochet Coaster Pattern is a fun and summery crochet pattern to rest your lemonade and keep it from sweating all over your furniture!

One of the options for decor in my bathroom is a small piece of embroidery. I’ve never been the most avid embroidery fan, but I do love the look of some of the options out there these days, like this Lemons Cross Stitch Pattern. I think it would look sweet hanging in my new bathroom (still not done yet: working madly!)

< nopin = “nopin”/figure>

I think I like this pretty little Lemon Tree Embroidery Pattern even more though. I love the pretty flowers and the different stitches included here. The beauty of a pdf pattern like this is that you can buy it and download it and get working on it if you already have the supplies in your craft room!

I also found this super cool C2C graph for a lemon slice blanket. I love the close-up and modern feel of this lemon. C2C stands for corner to corner, which means you start in the corner and work through the graph diagonally is not something I have done much of, but it does kind of interest me. Perhaps when I’m up and ready again for another big project! I tell ya, renos take a lot out of a girl!

I’ve been thinking about play food amigurumis in a new way recently. I think they’re so adorable, but my kids are too old to be interested in playing with crocheted food, so I’ve been thinking that perhaps I could insert a sponge in them for filling and make them out of cotton and put them by the sink in the kitchen or the bathroom to clean with. What do you think? I think this Amigurumi Lemon Crochet Pattern would be a perfect candidate for such use. If you have ever done this, please let me know any tips or tricks you have!

Perhaps a whole lemon would be a bit easier to get a handful of suds to clean the dishes in the kitchen? What do you think? Also, this little Lemon crochet pattern is a great deal: under $1.50 CAD (so that’s probably like $1 USD!)

There’s also this super tiny lemon wedge crochet play food amigurumi pattern! It looks like it’s almost as small as a real lemon wedge! This designer has such mad crochet skills! What a great looking pattern! It uses a 1.4 mm crochet hook (which is pretty small!), but look at the final result! This would make such a fun addition to a crochet play food set!

These adorable lemon slice crocheted pillow patterns would make a fun addition to any outdoor space! I love bright and cheery deck decor, so I think I could easily add one of these cushions to my deck! What a fun idea. It could be a great addition to a kids’ bed as well.

And I just had to include this darling Lemon-inspired crocheted doll pattern! I love everything about this sweet little doll, including her lime wedge pony-tail holders, her fun pigtails and adorable little smile! This sweet little doll would make a lovely handmade gift and looks like a ton of fun to make!

I hope you enjoyed this round up of crafty lemon-themed patterns. Pick up a pattern and get crafting today or pin it for later!
